What Would You Say?

“A YOUNG AND OLD VERSION”

If you had a chance to go back in time and talk to your younger self what would you say?

What sage advice have you gained over the years that you could share?

Would you attempt to smooth the way and make life easier for yourself?

Would you give encouragement despite the hard times that are to come?

What would you tell your younger self is most important in life?

If you could go back in time and talk with your younger self would you? And what would you say? #WickedQuestions

Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment. ~Ecclesiastes 11:9

Again, I ask you what would you say?

What Do You Do with That?

Replace the word ‘anger’ with any of the following:

  • Shame
  • Regret
  • Guilt
  • Sadness
  • Grief
  • etc.

Isn’t the question still the same, what do you do with that? These are all negative emotions or experiences, what about the so-called positive experiences or emotions?

  • Joyful
  • Excitement
  • Contentment
  • Humbled
  • Love
  • etc.

Again, when the moment of realization comes what do you do with that? Do you use these emotions or experiences for others good?

There is that pivotal moment when you realize the amount of anger you are carrying. And then the question becomes what do you do with that? #WickedQuestions

Can you answer the question for yourself?

A Wicked Question

We claim to love, we claim to care, and we claim to… well, whatever it is.

And if we are honest with ourselves how often do we fail?

I know in my case I find myself loving others how I think they should and need to be loved assuming it is all good and right. Do I ever ask them?

And what about God? I often run around trying to please him when maybe all he wants is for me to spend time with him?

Now go and learn what this means:

‘I desire compassion, rather than sacrifice,’

for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

Matthew 9:13 NASB2020
